firstly my 11month old son logan doesnt really drink anything other than his milk but he only has 2 bottles throughout the day, he does drink a little water out his beaker but not alot, i have tried juices and even tea but he just dont want them,
also logan wakes up alot throughout the night and i have to give him his milk i have tried giving him some water instead but he just spits it out and cries so i kind of feel as if i have to give him his milk to settle him back down, i do feel as if i am choosing the easy way sometimes but i just dont no what else to do cuz alot of the time i feel so tired
if anyone can help i would be greatly apprieciated

Try slowing lower the amount of milk you give him at night and when you get down to about 2oz start watering it down. My pediatrician said that he should be drinking 24-32oz a day in 3-4 bottles a day.(recommended for my son) So also try upping the amount of formula he is getting in the daytime as you are decreasing at night. Good luck!

Milk is very good for him, it has a lot that babies need to grow. All i can say is keep on trying other flavors as well eventually you will get there. Just be patient with him.

well his only on 7oz bottles and when he has them he dont drink them all at once anyway cuz he does eat solids really well so he has 3 meals a day as well as his milk
also i seen a health visitor and she said as long as his having around 20oz milk in 24hrs but i just think that he should be having other fluids other than his milk as he is only having 3 maybe 4 bottles in 24 hours or is that enough for him
